Rejected Merchandise Drawback

Rejected merchandise drawback is provided for in subsection ( c ) of the drawback law (19 U.S.C. 1313(c)). Drawback is available when imported merchandise does not conform to sample or specifications, shipped without consent, or determined to be defective at the time of import. If the rejected merchandise is exported or destroyed within 5 years of the date of import it can be eligible for drawback.

Merchandise may be established to be defective at the time of import by presenting evidence of the agreement between the foreign shipper and the importer.
